Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal and neurological systems. Chiropractors practice a manual approach that include a variety of techniques. They provide diagnosis, treatment and preventative care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, joints and nervous system.
Whether you are looking for a moment of relaxation, reduction in muscle tension or relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being as well as your quality of life.

Using the same techniques as acupuncture, electrical stimulation is added to the needles after insertion. This allows for a mild electric current to pass between the two needles, helping to treat both acute and chronic pain.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of small, single use solid needles into specific areas of the body. These specific areas may be where your complaint is, or further away. Acupuncture may be used to address specific muscle and joint complaints, or utilize a multi-system approach.
Rehabilitation exercise plans may be prescribed after an injury or surgery, or to address chronic problems. This plan will be adapted specifically to you and your condition.
Graston technique or instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) uses stainless steel tools to assist in breaking up abnormal tissue densities and increase blood flow. This helps to decrease movement restrictions and to assist in healing.
Athletic taping or kinesiology taping utilizes stretch cotton tape that can stay on for days. It can be used with acute or chronic conditions to assist with support and proprioceptive feedback.
Low-level lasers supply energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light (photo-biomodulation), so there is no heat produced. It works at the cellular level to help increase healing as well as reduce inflammation and pain.
Ultrasound is applied using a wand and gel put in direct contact with the skin. The sound waves that pass through the skin cause a vibration of the local tissues which can cause a local heating effect, though usually no heat will be felt by the patient.
Electrical stimulation is passed through electrodes to penetrate deep muscle fibers. These frequencies block pain signals at the spinal cord, helping to reduce swelling and increase blood flow to the area to naturally promote healing and repair.
Cupping therapy utilizes specialized cups applied to the skin with suction. The tissue is drawn up, increasing blood flow to the area.
